Need a help on Berlinale 2019 awards

Hi,

I am not that familiar with awards, so I would appreciate indications on the way to "solve" that case:

Grâce à Dieu (still) appears as a Golden Bear nominee at the recent Berlinale, that it was indeed.
It eventually got the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize.
Now, I cannot find the way to edit it the correct way, especially with the specific award "architecture" of the Berlinale.
I was thinking of deleting the Golden Bear nominee entry and at the same time add an entry for the Silver Bear Grand Jury. But the drop down list for addition does not include the "Berlin International Film Festival" (oficial name of the Berlinale).
Is it because it is already listed? So should I delete the Golden Bear nomination first, and then add the Silver Bear award?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

There may be other contributors who specialize in this, but based on previous listings for this and other festivals, I think the Golden Bear nomination should not be deleted, but the Silver Bear win should be added.

Award: Silver Berlin Bear
Category: Grand Jury Prize

It would be helpful to add guidance on this in the submission guide.

Well, the way I see it is that the IMDb is rather misleading. For the major festivals, you have several selection sets, each set has a top award that the movies are competing for, but also other prizes. It is the case for Cannes, Venice, Berlin, Locarno, San Sebastian, etc.
So once you are nominated, of course you compete for the highest award, but you may well win a "secondary" prize. To comply with IMDb presentation, keeping the original nomination might be redundant, since you cannot get that "secondary" prize without have competed for the top prize. Hence my move to delete the information of Golden Bear nomination and focus on the Silver Bear win.

Since it must be a quite common case for this type of festivals, I will wait for other and more knowledgeable contributors' advices before proceeding.

It looks like we don't have any Awards for this title yet.

HI,

Thanks to all for your inputs and especially Ed.
And thanks Michelle for taking special care of that request
I am glad that the movie will be correctly awarded, but I am still unclear about it keeping its Golden Bear nomination.
I will wait for the sumission to go through the backlog, and then review the situation.

Thanks again.
